Christians and Group Identity

The Left (among others) misunderstands Christians

Stephen L. Carter has an interesting…

Carter’s central thesis is, “When you mock Christians, you’re not mocking who you think you are.” He then goes on to point out that women, and black women in particular, are more likely to be Christians than men or white people. In addition, the age demographics of non-white Christians skews younger; thus, white Christians tend to be older, while non-white Christians tend to be younger. Immigrants tend to be Christian as well. Carter’s point is that for all the progressive left’s insistence that it is for minorities, the young, and the immigrant, they end up mocking the faith held by a significant portion of those they claim to represent.
